In the recent Baltimore Sun article, it explains how Kevin Mahoney helped a craft brewery earn a special exception.

“Independent Brewing Co. LLC’s application for a special exception was approved by the Bel Air Board of Appeals, part of a lengthy town, county, state and even federal approval process the company must go through before it opens a craft brewery in Bel Air.

A number of community supporters of the project attended the Board of Appeals meeting in Bel Air Town Hall, and they applauded when board Chair Greg Adolph announced, following the four-member board’s unanimous vote, that ‘the special exception is passed.’

A tap room, where visitors can taste samples of the beers brewed on-site and fill growlers with beer, will be part of the project.

‘That, by definition, is a bar use that does require a special exception,’ Bel Air Senior Planner Bob Syphard, the town’s liaison to the Board of Appeals, said of plans to serve alcohol.

Company owner and “chief fermentation officer” Phillip Rhudy, of Fallston, and Bel Air attorney Kevin Mahoney spoke about the project before the board.”
